Is anyone else using this one yet?

Sony 1.3 Mega 720P CMOS Sensor 800TVL Camera with 2.8mm Lens (http://www.surveilzone.com/sony-1.3-mega-720p-cmos-sensor-800tvl-hd-camera-cc1504)

I picked one up to try it out, it arrived a few weeks ago. First impression wasn't that great, but I haven't taken to time to go over all the settings and try to dial it in.

Just wondering if anyone else is flying with it, and wanted to share some settings to make it look good? :D

It's a CMOS cam and not CCD like most other flight cams. Won't that limit it's dynamic range and low light capabilities?

Probably. They posted a nice looking video example in the facebook group that looked good. The camera I got doesn't look like that did though... ;) This:

The specs say it's an Exmor sensor, similar to the one in the Sony action cams. Those work better than the average CMOS camera in low light, so I thought I'd give it a shot. Here's some info on the sensor: http://www.sony.net/SonyInfo/technology/technology/theme/exmor_r_01.html and another video that claims it's this camera at night:

This is what mine looks like in the sunlight though:

So either the default settings are waaay off, or I got a dud.

Hi Johan
The 800tvl is a good camera both night fly or daytime fly, but it do not have WDR func, it is also good when facing to the sun directly.

Here's a video of what it's doing. Either it's faulty it just plain sucks. :p

Setting white balance to "AWB-AI" helps the purple color when facing away from the sun, but then the camera hangs and reboots when it's facing towards the sun. You can see if do that once in the video. I won't be flying this one.

Oh you mean the control board. It's strange that they took so long to reply, usually they're very quick with their support. Maybe their reply ended up in your spam folder?
I asked David from Surveilzone to respond.

Hey surveilZone, I have this same camera and it's my second one. The first one I got just didn't have a video so I had to send it back. Now the second one I got video but it's real grainy. When I am flying with the camera above the horizon I can't see the ground cause it just kinda blanks out. When I start flying down the screen whites out for a few seconds before it focuses and I can see again. I live in Colorado and fly with mountains in the background and if the sun is anywhere near the mountains and I fly towards them forget it I can't see cause the screens whites out and I have to turn away and wait for my picture to come back. Is this a setting issue or what. Makes it really hard to fly when you can't see.

I think I like this company.... they care and go out of their way to get things right and their focus on FPV is better than the "other" one it seems.
